My job title is Apprenticeships Administrator, and within my role, I assist with a variety of duties, mainly administration, for the Business Development team and the Employer Engagement department. Day to day, I complete tasks such as, setting up accounts, recording data, marketing, answering enquiries from businesses and students, and assisting with events. Doing the Apprenticeship has meant I have been involved more with funded projects and projects to improve processes internally.

The Project Management Apprenticeship is versatile, and has the ability to cover a range of job roles in different sectors. Within the Apprenticeship I am learning about all of the processes and stages involved in a project and this gives me opportunity to get involved in internal projects as I am understanding how everything fits together.
